2Crafty and CSI have joined forces to solve case files .
this layout is case file #83 
 I am on both teams, therfore I am a double agent this month !!
I loved these colors and wanted to showcase the chippies
 with a masculine /mixed media themed feel and look. 

These colors have such a nautical energy to them and reminded me of our many sailing adventures.

another layout combining 2Crafty and CSI as a double agent .
I followed Em's sketch and added a thin strip of rich rust fabric to the color theme . 

cluster of chippies, blooms, twine and fabric.
closie of the cluster
inked in paprika and sage. 
the watch face is also inked with paprika and sage.
 I added some metal time pieces and painted crackle paint in order to secure these tiny pieces 

altered with gesso, ink and crackle paint .
I twisted the frayed fabric and machine stitched to the page.

My final layout for this month is also grunge, showcasing a pic I adore .
My Grandie Ella Jai with her Dad , on the mighty motorbike .
 I just adore this pic of Ella Jai and her Dad, Jair

The chippies are inked with Tim Holtz distress ink /rusty hinge ,
and dabbed with turquoise Versa color ink when dry .
Finally I coated all chipboard with Tim Holtz crackle paint 
to create an old rusty look and feel to the items.
thanks for popping by and having a look at my work 
bye for now until next time
